Counselling/Therapy Services

Progress of Counselling is a Professional Imitate Relationship, where we can walk through suffering, depression, grief, whanau breakdowns, parenting issues, together. I initially trained with the Australian Professional Counsellors Association in Sydney gaining a Diploma of Counselling - Majoring in Whanau. After moving back home, completed my Bachelors Degree in Social Services - Counselling. I have been in private practice for 8 years, and for 2.5 years was the Lead Counsellor of Hauora Team for Raglan Cluster Schools working with children, teenagers and whanau. If you are suffering, struggling and wanting help, reach out and together we can work to make positive changes.  No Judgement, Everyone Welcome.
